When ever i've done upright rows my elbows have ended fucked! Never again.

For traps DB shrugs is the best. Front shrugs my groin gets inbetween, behing, my ass gets in between.

With Voland's problem of too huge a front package and too large a rump hump, he might consider a trap/shrug bar rather than DB's. Much easier on the grip/wrist and a trap bar will not rub against the legs as a DB would..

When doing shrugs with a straight bar, experimenting with different hand positions may give a better focus , and stretch, to trap and upper back development ,for some. Anywhere from a close grip to a collar to collar grip and anywhere in between. Worth a few extra sets to find what might advance the size and strength of the traps if that muscle group seems slow or stubborn to develop. Good Luck.

db shrugs are a waste, use the bar, no way you can go heavy enough with db's.

i get what your saying, the heavy stretch you get with the bar feels like your building thickness from the stretch alone...

kills my forearms/biceps tendons even with straps these days, have to go the db route now

ive got 3 variations i go with,,, seated, leaning forward...... conventional standing and yates style, bending the arms

I think upright are good for finishing off shoulders and warming up traps. Assuming you start with shoulders and end with traps, some do it vice versa like Kevin Levrone don't know why.
